Far-left activists in Portland were blocking streets and threatening drivers on Friday, reportedly disrupting traffic in order to protest a man shot by Portland Police last month.
Antifa and BLM protesters blocked roads as Portland Police looked on, protesting the shooting of Patrick Kimmons, an armed man who was fatally shot after advancing upon officers who were investigating a shooting at the time. Several firearms were recovered at the scene of the crime, and Kimmons is suspected of shooting two wounded people nearby.
Protesters blocked the road and directed traffic where to go during the #PatrickKimmons vigil. Needless to say, it went off without a hitch.

Despite the nature of the case, Kimmons’ death has sparked protests in Portland, including opposition by Antifa and Black Lives Matter affiliates.
During the Friday protest, agitators in black clothing blocked traffic on the intersection of SW 4th and Harvey Milk streets, threatening individuals and menacingly approaching cars that did not want to adhere to their slipshod traffic marshalling.
“Just go that way,” one protester said to the driver of a car with North Carolina tags.
“Why?” the driver inquired.
“Because I told you to,” the protester responded.
Others were more threatening, including one man who referred to the man as a “white supremacist,” telling him to “go back to North Carolina.”
“Go back to North Carolina where you came from,” the man shouted. “We don’t need your KKK in Portland, Oregon.”
The driver of the vehicle was visibly shaken, and could be seen calling for police, who looked on from across the road.
The video was uploaded by Brandon Farley and posted to Twitter earlier this morning.
“Protesters blocked the road and directed traffic where to go during the #PatrickKimmons vigil,” Farley wrote. “Needless to say, it went off without a hitch.”
